of the city, we really deeply appreciate the year of support that you have given us already last year and look forward to the continuing support of funding to backfill this. what it means to us specifically is that there's a long waiting list in the city. we have a long waiting list of people that need subsidized child care. a couple years ago it was about 3,000. right now it almost sits at 5,000 people waiting for child -- affordable child care slots. and the working families going to school, working very hard, if they didn't get this child care, specifically at our site, we would lose about 30 families and children. so, if they don't have subsidized child care, they might not be able to work, not go to school, not be productive citizens of san francisco. so, i urge you seriously to consider this for this year and in future years to help the families that we serve on a daily basis in san francisco because it makes a difference. and this city is taking leadership if you do support this. i appreciate the time and effort and hope you support this wholeheartedly. thank you. >> thank you very much

,000 to use at their discretion to support physical education. they have used in tha variety of ways, to help community gardens through the city, and to buy athletic supplies and so forth. it's up to the pta's discretion. and that's a valuable asset that they not only enjoyed but have been thankful for. dpw is committed for every school site that participates to do a deep cleaning twice a year. and in an effort to talk to the principals and parents letting them know that we their school site and playgrounds, we want it in a better condition than it is today. and to have a deep cleaning twice a year, is something that we are excited about doing. and so are the schools and parents. as well we have a large pool of capital available to different school sites throughout the year. basically to draw on, and we have created a grant program for pta's to apply for the funds to open on the weekend. it's one thing to open up the playground or to have a league come in or whatever it may be. and it's really been fun to talk to the different pta's involved so far. different pta's have different ideas. some
bond that those of us who love animals and those who love dogs especially have. i think by that measure in terms of the quality of your soul, given how you treat and talk about bertie, i think that that makes you an amazing person. and i wish you the very best in your new endeavors, but i know that you're still going to be here. i appreciate the fact that you, as you indicated, you're going to make sure that district 9 gets more resources in your new job, which i appreciate. and i look forward to working with you. and, of course, you know, one of the things that i think it's an illustration of the kind of person you are, the kind of supervisor you are is that as you leave, you leave behind not only the work, but you also leave in place someone that you have mentored and someone that you have helped, and that's i think a very important testament of your leadership. the fact that you're passing it on and i look forward to working with supervisor tang as she goes on board, but the fact that she is there is another testament to your leadership. thank you. >> supervisor avalos. >> supervisor

appreciate your consideration of the legislation in us today to continue changes to our city's local business enterprise ordinance to increase contracting opportunities for so-called certified puc lbe, which are small businesses located within our regional water service area, but outside of the boundaries of san francisco. the puc lbe program was created in 2006 to allow small business that operate within our puc water service area to compete for work on the water system improvement program; as know the wisp program has two-thirds of costs being paid by regional water customers of the sfpuc and so the thinking in 2006 it was appropriate for those communities that pay for our water systems improvement to also yield the local economic benefits that are certified puc lbe contracting program can provide. since the wisp program is nearing completion, but the sfpuc has additional projects within the water service area that are not part of wisp construction, the changes in this legislation would allow puc it to continue to support the small businesses by expanding the program to other areas in the r
think it's great that coca-cola is providing us these funds and making sure that we're reducing obesity in san francisco. is there any kind of advertising that we do for coca-cola? >> >> these grants do not require any advertising at all. >> >> thank you. thank you miss branson. any members of public wishing to comment? you can line up on the far wall behind mr. paulson. >> does any trail last forever? i don't know. maybe we're near the budget end, i don't know. does any gift last forever? i don't know. maybe we're going to have the end, but money's hard to hold. we're going to have it maybe and bring it on, and they will be singing songs on the trails and it's the real thing with this item gifted today. it's coke and budget. >> thank you, next speaker, please. >> good morning, thank you. i'm robert bakewell an enrichment resident who lives right next to this area of the oak woodlands and we have been working on this area for a long time and i'm also co-founder of the friends of the oak woodlands park, which is a park partner sponsored by park s alliance. we support the resolution

: thank you. thank you. >> ted, san francisco tenants union. i want to remind us all this is an extremely difficult market for renters right now where the new dotscom boom arging well over 1230 a month, evictions have been tripling and it's a tough time for renters. the two most important laws protecting renters are the condo conversion law and the rent control law. and it will repeal units from rent control and it will convert -- it's exactly over 2,000 units immediately to condos. that's a significant number off of rent control into condos. it's sending a strong message to the real estate speculators that san francisco no longer cares about regulating condo conversion and it's going to be like the wild west and we're going to have an epidemic of evictions in the upcoming months and upcoming years. that said, i think it's true that the condo conversion process is broken. there's t.i.c.s that are unregulated, unlimited, there's thousands of them during the peak years. we need to get them regulated and limited, we need to make sure we're not allowing unlimited conversions. i think the supe
that would come to us to volunteer legal services program would fund legal representation for mono lingual women who are victims of [tkro-eufpls/]. domestic violence. and they are often involved in custody matters in which they have no access to the civil court simply because they do not speak english and we're able to provide them with an attorney and interpreter, who can stand beside them as they must go up against their abuser to ensure that they retain custody of their children. what you may not know is that often abusers use the civil legal system as another way to continue the abuse of a women who has already obtained a restraining order against them, but they file meritless civil action and the survivor those show up in court. thank you. >> next speaker. >> good afternoon a anna flores the co-director of muhas. so we wanted to touch a little bit on the decline or the decrease of calls to the police to domestic violence because a lot of it due to the political climate that is happening. we know when a woman is afraid to call the police, it increases the level of violence in the
, and potentially additional real estate speculation that could lead us right back to an identical debate within a short period of time and that's fundamentally an issue that i have with this particular proposal. and i would love an initial i guess comment on that, and certainly if there are suggestions from the public on this but to me that seems to be a fundmental piece that i wish was addressed by the legislation. >> chair wiener: president chiu, that is inherently speculation, nobody knows. to believe one side or another to me is something that we should not be doing. two things that i would articulate. first of all owner occupancy rules dictate there needs to be owner occupancy for a number of years before this is to be eligible for the condo lottery. in most instances it's three years for a certain amount of tenants for larger buildings it gets more complicated. the even potential chance for that to happen is years down the road. second of all what i would articulate is -- and ask any of the t.i.c. owners that speak with us today -- the desirability of t.i.c.s especially because of the fin
of the technology store vendors using department funds that have been approved and the board of supervisors annual budgetary process and which is certified by the controller. oca started a process to develop a new competitive solicitation to award new contracts to replace these contracts prior to them when they expire on december 31st, 2013. given the estimated contract values, oc would -- oca would be returning to the board after that solicitation to request your approval for new contracts over 10 million. i would be glad to respond to questions. >> colleagues, any questions? actually, can i just ask, mr. jones, upping the cap $30 million, what are the additional tech expenses that you anticipate just on a bigger level that will come in? so, it looks like we may exceed the limit by march 2013. what are some examples that these large tech expenses that may be coming through the rest of the year? >> specifically on some of the allowances with you include, there are a number of ongoing large projects that were just started and the departments have not encumbered all of the funds that they anticipate
that while they could directly administer the different garages, that we have in front of us, they consider the fact that the added oversight and community relations provided by these organizations are in the best interest of the garage and the city. i think and heard and believe that many of you have heard from the leadership of the union square community about the impact that this organization has had in union square within a part of town that sees some of the most densely traveled and densely parking situations that we have in the city. so, with that, colleagues, ask for your support for this and we will proceed. >> great. i assume, colleagues, that we need a roll call on this. we can have a roll call, madam chair. >> on item 16, supervisor cohen? cohen aye. supervisor farrell? farrell aye. supervisor kim? kim aye. supervisor mar? mar aye. supervisor wiener? wiener aye. supervisor yee? yee aye. supervisor avalos? avalos no. supervisor breed? breed aye. supervisor campos? campos aye. president chiu? chiu aye. supervisor chu? chu no. there are 9 ayes and 2 no's. >> the resolution is adopte
government and to the feds for your proper use of that. the president of the ndaa is accountable to nobody. he's already been accountable to the voters and that's it. the constitution provides that understood -- the founders understood it is in the state interest to kill somebody and they have in the constitution a provision called a bill of mark, marqe. i congratulate you and i hope you will urge the congress and the president to use their proper constitutional powers and have the killing done by congress where at least there is some accountability. thank you. (applause) >> thank you. thank you. next speaker. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is john [speaker not understood] and i represent an african university and kenya school of law. i also am interested in talking about mohammed ibrahim award for 2013 and 2014. i currently reside at providence church at 1601 mc kinnon and previously resided at 5 47 haight street in san francisco. there is an interesting program that's being commended by bevan dufty. our city has secured a million dollars in state funding to expand and improve o
that some of us will be glad that we won't have a regular mcdonald's patron in our midst. [laughter] >> i think that we will miss the fact that -- well, actually i'm not sure we'll all miss the fact that carmen rarely breaks with her modern colleagues, except on the critical issue of cat de-clawing. oh, you remember that. i think many of us will miss the fact that she has been so hard working that we were all surprised that today she didn't submit any new legislative proposals and at the last minute she asked me four tough questions about the ndaa which i appreciated. and i will just say for me, one thing i'm not going to miss as you leave is that no one is going to wonder after today if i have a sister on the board of supervisors. [laughter] >> but to just wrap it up, carmen, thank you for your service. you have been a tremendous colleague. we all look forward to working with you and serving with you as co-elected officials and we wish you all the very, very best. thank you. and with that, does anyone else have any words you'd like to say? supervisor farrell. >> thank you, president chiu
know you're undocumented if you don't leave. the reality they shifted from using ellis to using threats and buyouts. we don't know how many buildings are in the lottery right now where that happened, where someone was bought out or threatened. how can we talk about clean buildings unless we do some kind of investigation. the protection in wiener and farrell's legislation for someone living in a t.i.c., we all know the lifetime leases are problematic under costa hawkins, but the other thing is it's very simple for a landlord of a t.i.c. to simply threaten or buy out that tenant and circumvent the lifetime lease. again there are no real protections for tenants. the only real protection for tenants against evictions for t.i.c.s is to not do t.i.c.s, period, end of discussion. let's provide homeowners other ways. we should be building. new construction is how we provide home ownership for middle income people. stop cannibalizing the rental stack. evicting one group of people to provide homes for others is not good policy. we should be together in demanding that this city provide affordable
of us, in needs an amendment. have gone through this process with the home i no longer own. it's been more than three years when i wrote a check for $70 for an appeal. the check was cashed the next day. yesterday i received a refund, not the whole $70. from my understanding most of the issue is a discussion or lack thereof between the assessor's office and the tax collector's office. i remember years ago trying to pay my property taxes and being told i am so sorry you can't do that yet. i found it odd that they do not want my money. the process then was that they had not figured out the escape assessment; they were still working on numbers from years earlier. they knew those based on my purchase price but they were not ready to collect the money for four more years. i knew they would be collecting at some point so i set it aside. i can appreciate that so many people don't. if i were asked, i would be happy to lend a hand and solve these problems. >> it is not the role of the assessment board to facilitate a process between our citizens and our homeowners or property owners but for me
the general fund, that general fund relief was simply to put us where we were before, because we had lost three positions from our victim services as a result of cutbacks in the state budget. we asked for one paralegal and the budget analyst agreed with us in this particular area. our advocates and the work that they do is not comparable to that done by our partners and non-profit organizations. they are very important functions, but they are very different functions. the work that we do in our office is directly related to legislative mandates such as probation for requesting victim compensation funds from the state. we also work with victim relocation. we're working closely together as a team between victim services and attorneys who are handling the prosecution, often assisting in that process. that is a very different process than the one that our partners in the non-profit world do. the ones that our partners in the non-profit world is very important and frankly, we couldn't do our job without their support. but it's important to recognize that they are very different. here are some
to continue to retain the existing entitlement rights after the two years the mta will use the site for the extraction tunnel boring machine. so, with that colleagues, i'd like to ask for your support. >> thank you very much. any other comments? given that, can we take that same house same call? thank you, colleagues. >> colleagues, why don't we get roll call. >> first on roll call is supervisor cohen. >> thank you very much. i'm sorry, madam clerk. can you re-refer me? i seem to have misplaced my notes. >> no problem, supervisor cohen. supervisor farrell. >> thank you, madam clerk. colleagues, today i have introduced a number of hearings related to the budget and finance committee. we are going to convene the five-person committee on march 6 and start our budget process. we're going to have budget updates from a number of the major departments as well as updates from the controller's office on their five-year financial plan. it plan and 10 year capital plan as well as our city's reserve and set aside policies. i think two ones of note that i'll just call out. one calling for a hear
to thank members of public who have come out for this item. we have in front of us a supplemental appropriation for domestic violence services and for additional law enforcement staffing that i had proposed in december. i want to [tha-fpg/] a moment and thank our district attorney, mayor lee and all of who were with the board who have co-sponsored this measure. as think many of you know the late 2011 comprehensive report on family violence in san francisco shows that reports of domestic violence in san francisco has risen sharply in last few years. what the data shows is that the demand for city departments and non-profits for domestic violence assistance has increased steadily while funding for such services has stayed flat or decreased. for example, and the one-year period documented in the report we saw the increase in calls to domestic violence hotlines and 29% in more beds needed at domestic violence shelters. 202% in the number of child support cases involving family violence and i know the district attorney will highlight that. over the past two years the district attorn
loss is on the order of about $5 million for us. * >> okay. and -- >> and that is the deepest discount in the bart system. >> okay, okay. >> thank you. >> supervisor avalos? >> just a quick question. just a quick question. mr. rose touched upon it, that the feeder agreement, he described i think he said voluntary. and historically how does that agreement come about? no one really describes anything where there is a payment made as voluntary. so, i'm a little bit surprised by that wording and how did this agreement first come about, what was the rationale behind it and policy objective? >> it predates me. back in 1987 there was a decision made regionally that bart should contribute to sfmta for the bringing the riders to the bart system. and, so, it has continued to that date. and as mr. lee said, it was to be raised on the number of connecting riders. but there was i guess the available -- the data was not able to be collected. so, the metropolitan transportation commission changed the formula to be linked to sales tax. which is somewhat reflective of the economy and the level of rider
